To those who are confused as to where the United States stands, let me be clear: As is their right under our Constitution, the American people have spoken. They have chosen a new president, and he has chosen a new ambassador to the United Nations
The United States opposes this (UN) resolution (condemning the U.S. embargo of Cuba) today in continued solidarity with the Cuban people and in the hope that they will one day be free to choose their own destiny. This assembly (the UN) does not have the power to end the U.S. embargo. It is based in U.S. law, which only the United States Congress can change
The Cuban regime is sending the warped message to the world that the sad state of its economy, the oppression of its people, and the export of its destructive ideology is not its fault. We might stand alone today. But when the day of freedom comes for the Cuban people and it will come we will rejoice with them as only a free people can. (U.S. Amb. Nikki Haley, Nov. 1, 2017.)
Deserves repeating and then more repeating.
